[quote user="Morehead State"]I have a particular hatred for the lottory.
My friend Bill Moffatt got hooked on scratch tickets. Charged over $40,000.00 on his own cards, including opening accounts his wife didn't know about. Then he started charging them on his company credit card.</P>
Then he hung himself, 500 feet behind his back yard in September of 2003.</P>
The states where he bought those tickets of course were very happy to have the money. Its an acceptable bit of "collateral damage" for the collective good. Obviously a price they are willing to pay.</P>
wow, thats awful man...sorry to hear that. </P>
i thought the sale of lottery tickets on credit and debit cards was strictly prohibited??!
well, clearly there are ways around it to get cash...so i guess thats a moot point...</P>
